Vintage Original Spec Re-creation of the 1959 ES-175

The period-correct Gibson Custom ES-175 hollowbody electric guitar serves up the rich, sultry tones you can only get from a '50s Gibson "jazzbox". The ES-175 was introduced in 1949 as an innovative solution to amplifying archtop guitars. In 1959, with the addition of an updated rounded neck profile and humbucking pickups, the ES-175 earned its place as a first choice for jazz guitar. This ES-175 is an instrument built to be as true to the original as possible. With a three-ply maple body, mahogany neck, and a bound rosewood fretboard, the ES-175 sports the same tonewoods that made the ES-175 perfect for smoky jazz tones. And with accurate details like the florentine cutaway, the replica cotton rim stays, and vintage-style hardware, the Gibson Custom ES-175 hollowbody electric guitar embodies the soul of jazz guitar.

Over 60 years of smooth jazz tone

When you pick up the Gibson Custom ES-175 hollowbody, you're holding one of the most definitive jazz guitars money can buy. In fact, the ES-175 is so popular with players worldwide, that it's one of the few Gibson models that has been in constant production since its introduction in 1949. The combination of vibrant, organic tones, and exceptional playability, make the ES-175 a guitar you'll treasure for a lifetime.

Vintage-voiced pickups and period-correct appointments

Dual P-94 single-coil pickups give the ES-175 the punch and clarity Gibson's original pickups are known for. And the bridge pickup is reverse-wound, for hum-canceling performance when both pickups are engaged. Other vintage appointments include the original-spec "Zig Zag" tailpiece, which was created using an original form that was found in Gibson's old Kalamazoo, MI workshop, and the adjustable, compensated rosewood bridge, which was created using original tools from the '50s.

Gibson Custom's commitment to quality

Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the ES-175. Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and nut for incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches like the adjustable rosewood bridge and the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel, they remain true to the ES-175 as well as Gibson's history.
